New bell schedules for the 2017-2018 school year historical information:

Regarding our new schedule, in 2015 the Issaquah School District had received numerous requests from parents and community members asking for a later start time for our high school students. In response to this request the Superintendent directed senior staff to study the issue from an operational and financial standpoint with the following parameters:

  • School start and end times for all grade levels must occur between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
  • The tiered bus system, which saves hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, must be kept intact.
  • The change to the high school start time must be significant.
  • The costs associated with changing to later start and end times must be fiscally responsible. 

After careful consideration following multiple sessions of feedback and input received from parents, staff, students, and the community, the decision was made to transition to a new bell schedule for the 2017-2018 school year. 

For complete historical information regarding the decision, please visit the 2017-2018 Bell Times Decision and Historical Information webpage.
